Notre Dame withdraws from hosting first Trump-Biden debate

A nonpartisan commission that holds the quadrennial presidential debates says that the first of the three scheduled showdowns this fall between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden is being moved from Indiana to Ohio after Notre Dame withdrew as a host. Such was done due to COVID-19 concerns.

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CDP) announced on Monday that the Sept. 29 debate will now be held co-hosted by Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic and held at the Health Education Campus (HEC) in Cleveland, Ohio.

The move came after Notre Dame University in South Bend, Indiana withdrew as the host of the first presidential general election debate.

As the climate under COVID-19 changes daily citizens around the country, though there are growing concerns, await the Trump-Biden debates this fall.
